This project aims to characterize magnetic samples produced by Powder Injection Moulding (PIM) specifically designed for tidal energy capture systems. The electrical properties were analyzed with different techniques: measurement of average electrical conductivity with both two-point technique and four-point technique, and also with eddy current technique. The electrical impedance profile of the samples were performed by eddy currents and the electrical conductivity profile were measured by a four-point probe. Magnetic properties were analyzed using the Hall Effect probe and morphological defects by X ray.
